Chicken and Corn Chowder
Serves: 10
Preparation Time: 5mins
Cooking Time: 20mins
Ingredients
    • 3 chicken breasts and 4 thighs, on the bone
    • Olive oil
    • 2 large onions, chopped
    • 2 large carrots, grated coarsely
    • 4 stalks celery, finely sliced
    • 2 large yellow, red or green sweet peppers, diced in 1 cm dice
    • 250 g pack of streaky bacon, cut into thin strips
    • 2 cans of corn kernels, one can drained
    • 2 to 3 chicken stock cubes
    • 1 can low-fat evaporated milk
    • 1 packet white onion soup powder
    • 125 ml parsley, finely chopped
    • salt and freshly milled black pepper to taste
Method
Remove the skin from the chicken and discard. With a sharp knife, remove as much of the flesh from the bones as you can. Set the bones aside for later. Keeping the dark and the white meat separate, cut the meat into 2 cm pieces. Cover and also set aside for later.
Heat the olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan and add the onions. Sauté briefly over high heat then add the carrots. Sauté until lightly caramelized then add the celery and peppers and sauté until glossy. Now add the bones and brown meat chunks and toss until they take on some colour. Add the bacon pieces and toss well. Sauté until everything is golden and yummy. This is your flavour base so take trouble with this process … you want it nicely caramelized (but not burnt as this will ruin everything with a bitter taste!)
Add the corn kernels and the brine from one can. (The brine is quite sweet – you can omit it totally). Now, cover the food in the pan with boiling water and add two stock cubes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
Fish out the bones and check the soup’s consistency. If it’s too thick and chunky to your liking, add a little water but if you like it chunky, leave the water levels are they are.
Now whisk together the can of milk and soup powder and add to the soup, whisking until smooth and thick. Add the chicken white meat and parsley.
